Be Prepared

Here are some of the things S. thinks an “outdoor scientist kit” should include:

  • Flashlights (as many as you can find)
  • Sunglasses
  • A bag for collecting rocks
  • A compass
  • A small magnifying glass
  • Binoculars
  • Books about birds, trees, insects, and flowers


What’s in your nature kit?

  1. Add to that:

    Water bottle
    a snack
    a jar, for collecting (some times we collect a day in a jar)
    a map of the area if we have one
    vine charcoal (since it’s better to leave plants where they are get some vine charcoal and you can do leaf rubbings and then simply wipe off the leaf).
